STEVENS cross-country, marathon and touring mountain bikes are suitable for off-road use, but not for blocked terrain, tricks, stair riding etc., training and competitive use in the categories freeride, dirt, downhill. STEVENS bikes of this category can be used on surfaces permitted for bikes of the categories 1 and 3 and are in addition suitable for rough and unpaved terrains. Sporadic jumps are also included in the field of use of these STEVENS bikes. But particularly inexperienced riders doing jumps may land inappropriately, thus increasing the acting forces significantly which may result in damage and injuries. We recommend that you train your skills in a riding technique course. If necessary, ask your STEVENS dealer to inspect your STEVENS bicycle at shorter intervals than according to the service and maintenance schedule.
For full suspension STEVENS mountain bikes trailers are not permitted.
